Thread: Ballyhavil, revisited

    Ballyhavil, revisited

    I decided to revisit another favourite spot of mine when doing further tests on the Vermeer Pinhole Panel for my old Hasselblad film back.

    Ballyhavil is a piece of headland/coastline just outside Skerries Co Dublin and very rarely does it let me down in terms of subject matter and lighting conditions.

    The first image here is of a large piece of fishing net which was washed up on the rocks. It intrigued me because it came in all rolled up as it is in the picture and looked for all the world like some giant lattice cuttle fish or squid.

    Hope you like the images which were all taken on Ilford HP5 rated at 320 iso in Rodinal 1:100 for 30 minutes semi stand.

    The remaining pictures are probably familiar to you from other formats I have posted but I think the Vermeer made a pretty nice job of them ....

    Don't you love it when you find flotsam and jetsam along the beach.

    These are fantastic, George. Wonderfully composed and perfectly executed. They are also incredibly sharp. Are you sure you didn't slip one of your old Hassy lenses on?

    I can't believe the quality myself. The pinhole diameter is obviously a great match for the focal length. Thanks Colray.

    This was one of the biggest pieces of flotsam I have ever seen. It was too heavy for me to lift, was about 20ft long and was all wrapped up just as you see it. Makes one think of the power of the sea all the same?

    Thanks David. Yes, I'm certain that I didn't use a 30mm Distagon ...because that's what I would have needed to get this view.
